Always having an entrepreneurial spirt, I started my first business at 21 years old in the areas of real estate and property management. I then honed these skills as a licensed general contractor, realtor, and mortgage broker, building homes and warehouses throughout south Florida. Expanding on that base, I earned a Master's degree in Business Management with a focus on marketing and business strategy from the University of Florida, Warrington School of Business, currently ranked No. 34 in Best Business Schools.
After earning a Master's in Business, I started my career with Sherwin-Williams through the Management Training Program (MTP) and took on management positions with The America's Group (TAG) in Miami, Florida. I then advanced to varying roles of increasing responsibility, joining the Consumer Brands Group (CBG), and relocating to Austin, TX where I am currently a Regional Sales Manager (RSM) responsible for the strategic partnership with Lowe’s and Sherwin-Williams.
